Notes on the Geography of Great Mirror: Photo 16
At the Workshops' final closing in 2012 a man said. "I'm gutted; the axe has just fallen on 90 jobs. Hillside is more than a factory, it's a symbol of what New Zealand used to be: proud, courageous, strong, leader of the world in the 50s, 40s, and 30s." Of the last 90 jobs, sixteen were saved when Bradken, an Australian manufacturer of heavy equipment, bought the foundry.
